On our trip to Southern California, I planned a surprise “Bon Voyage” party for Jon’s deployment.
I arranged to have it at my sister’s house, so Jon wouldn’t get suspicious.
I made the plans and my sister, Jessica, helped me with all of the rest.
Without their help, I wouldn’t have been able to pull this off.
Jessica made the banners and went to town on the decor!
Just take a look!
Pictures of Jon were arranged all over.
Jessica made a notebook for everyone to leave a note for Jon… so he could read everyone’s notes to him while he is deployed.
Jessica made sure that no one parked in front of the house. We didn’t want Jon to think anything was going on. As far as he was concerned, we were going over my sister’s house to have dinner with her family while we were down visiting.
Little did he know that our friends and family were waiting to surprise him!
Everyone was given a little flag to wave upon his entrance.
We wanted to give him a hero’s welcome!
And surprised, he was!
I think he was in shock. 😉
DeBran made a fabulous Italian feast!
It was SO delicious!
